White collects books
A message from the Easton High School National Honor Society chapter – Nathan White, Class of 2004 at Easton Jr/Sr High School and a former member of the Easton National Honor Society chapter, has been working on a service project for one of his classes at Bentley College, and he has asked for some help from the National Honor Society and the Easton community.

His goal is to gather a collection of 1,000 books to give to Teen LEEP, a non-profit organization giving youth in Massachusetts state custodial entrepreneurial experience in the management of a bookstore. To help Nathan in his quest of 1,000 books, we are asking the people in the community to bring used books to either the high school or elementary school.

    Boxes will be provided in all high school home rooms and in the elementary school. For more information about Teen LEEP, visit them on the Web at www.teenleep.org.
The Easton Field Days Committee is seeking a sponsor or sponsors who may be willing to help fund their annual fireworks show. This show has been a great addition to our annual festival but it is an expensive one to provide.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. The committee is also looking for a group who might be interested in taking over and organizing the annual sunrise breakfast. The Easton United Methodist Church has taken on this project for many years and has decided it is time for them to step down.  If there is a group in town who may be interested in taking on this fund-raiser, please call the Town Office at 488-6652.

It is reported that Darrell Page may be able to leave the Aroostook Medical Center and come home in a few days if his health keeps on improving. Of course he will have to be isolated at home for some time so that he doesn’t contract another infection.
